I use coupons, rebates, shop at different stores for sale items. I stock up on such that we use often that will keep on pantry shelves & freezer. I make most meals from scratch use the microwave, my smaller convection oven & crock pot. That saves time & electric. When I can, I make enough for 2 meals & freeze one. There are ways of doing things if certain veg. are too high at the time you want them. Instead of fresh peppers you can get frozen chopped for cooking. When peppers are cheaper buy more & chop, dice, or in strips & freeze them yourself. They don't have to be blanched first. Onions can be done same way. When a reciepe calls for fresh tomatoes & they are high use can tomatoes. There are lots of ways to get around higher prices.
